I am so happy that my search for an experienced and affordable photographer for our son's wedding led us to Isabel Souza. When I viewed her profile on Thumbtack, I immediately knew she was the photographer of choice after viewing 5-6 other profiles as well. From the first meeting at her studio to the final moments of photographing Steve and Ka Yu's wedding and reception, Isabel was amazing! She has a calm, quiet and very patient demeanor while endeavoring to get the most from the posers. Her style is different from the normal "stock" poses and photos you get from other wedding photographers. She is very creative and as an eye in taking photos that "say" what she sees when looking through the lens. She captures the very thoughts of the ones she is photographing. Just several days after the wedding Isabel began posting wedding photos in small batches and they were absolutely beautiful! Isabel provided us with a wonderful montage of photos of Steve and Ka Yu's wedding day that will be forever cherished. Isabel is not only an excellent photographer but she is a true artist and it was a genuine pleasure to have met her and worked with her. If you are looking for something different in your photos, I highly recommend Isabel Souza.......she will not disappoint you!!

What can I say about Nicole and Jay! They have become not only our favorite photographers but our new friends. They are so easy and comfortable to work with, we felt like we knew them for years. Every pose, every location produced such an amazing photo. Turn around time and email responses were so super quick! And the photos of our engagement session and wedding day left us breathless--so so amazing and beautiful! Working with The Still Life is the best decision we made for our wedding day :)

We had looked and talked to many photographers before we found Carrie and we love her style which is very delightful, fun and romantic. Carrie is experienced and very creative to capture the beautiful and meaningful moments. We just got the photos from her today and we are impressed by the great job she did. Personally i'm a little bit picky and demanding with the professional photos but Carrie did win me. We really appreciate her help and would love to recommend people to this modern delightful photograph style.

Hired VisualEtiquette as our wedding photographer and the engagement session was included in the package. We just received our engagement photos back and could not be more pleased. Emil was able to capture every moment, many un-posed and many posed. He has great ideas that he will share with you, but also encourages you to bring your own style and props if that is the route you want to go. Friends and Family are raving about the photos, saying they are some of the best engagement photos they've ever seen! VisualEtiquette has competitive pricing yet exceptionally better quality compared to some of the very high priced photographers we interviewed while choosing our vendors. Emil is a busy photographer, so it sometimes takes 2-3 days for him to get back to me, but he never fails to answer our questions.

As a photographer myself (no longer in the industry) I know exactly what I am looking for and Jack more than surpassed our expectations. After learning that our "regular" photographer for our fashion campaigns (for social media), had unexpectedly left the country, we were in a time crunch :( There were many challenges throughout the shoot, (None related to the photographer) our location which was booked online did not meet expectations, the outdoor location was barren and the day was extra windy etc. These things happen. However Jack's timely and professional demeanor saved the day. He is very skilled at problem solving and knows his stuff. What we thought was a brightly lit space was not, thankfully Jack was prepared to deal with the lighting issues. Once we received our images we could not be more thankful! Most photographers can get decent shots in a perfect location with all the time in the world. But it takes an amazing photographer to turn the worst of situations dealt to him around and have it so you never knew there were any challenges. We are planning to have Jack be our go to photog from now on.

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!

I engaged Kristine to do head shots for my new business. I would highly recommend her. She was fun and professional, came to my house and took photos in the comfort of my own home. I was in a rush to get a headshot for a deadline which she generously accommodated. I was very happy with the final product, never knew I could look so good! Affordable too!

I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!

This was our first family photo session with our 6 month old. I also had Konrad take professional photos for me. I could not have asked for a better photographer! Konrad was easy to work with from our first call where he asked a lot of great questions, to working through location challenges the day of, to engaging our son so he could get great shots. He brought his assistant who was amazing at suggesting poses and giving guidance. We are so pleased with our images and look forward to having him as our photographer going forward.

I had Rafay do the photography for my niece's birthday. He was incredibly kind and friendly. I didn't have to mention what to take pictures of, which was really nice. For the cake cutting ceremony, Rafay stayed close enough to take his shots but blended into the background so our guests were not bothered. Everything went smoothly and I was very happy with the outcome. The quality of the photos were excellent and they were given to us in a timely manner. I was very pleased with Rafay and I will definitely be a customer again in the future.
